Multiple media outlets reported this weekend that Demi Lovato is home after seeking treatment for addiction at a Utah rehabilitation facility over the holiday season. Sources are saying that Lovato had recently been to rehab at the end of 2021, but is “doing well” at back home now.
According to People.com: “Demi is committed to their well-being, and throughout their life, they plan to do regular check-ins to make sure they are putting themselves first.” UsMagazine.com said on Sunday that Lovato’s most recent stay in rehab was over in time for them to spend the holidays with their family, sharing: “Demi will have a sober living companion [with] them during this transition. It was their decision to go back to rehab.”
Lovato, 29, wrote on Instagram early last month that being “California sober” — drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana — wasn’t working anymore. “Sober sober is the only way to be,” Lovato said. Lovato, who identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns “they” and “them,” had been using meth and heroin when they suffered a near-fatal overdose in 2018. Lovato subsequently went to rehab and received injections of Vivitrol, which stops the effects of opioids. Lovato had also spent time in treatment facilities in 2010 and 2012.
Lovato’s struggle with substance abuse were chronicled in the YouTube docu-series, Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil.
